  1. Tower Tube Sizes

    I'm not trying to post a sales pitch here. I'm just trying to get a handle on what size clamps I will need for different brands of boats. I won't have anything available for about three weeks. If I have some still available I will post a paid classified ad here. In the meantime if you want to see some pics of a test mule, you can follow the link below. It is just a post with a couple of teaser pics for now. http://www.mbboatowners.com/index.php/topic/5955-overhead-racks-teaser-pics/
  2. Tower Tube Sizes

    After looking at the Piper racks I can only tell you about mine. They spread the pressure against the board over the whole surface of the rack not just two areas. They are also very thin and increase headroom by a few inches which is valuable space in a boat. The boards are held with wide straps that cinch tight so the board rides rock solid across rough water. Mine also come complete and ready to mount with all necessary hardware. Then they also look great when empty, in my personal non-bias opinion of course!
  3. Tower Tube Sizes

    Yep. Should have finished product in about 3 weeks. For now they will only fit towers with cross tubes. Once I get those going I need to get my hands on some of the newer tower designs for custom brackets. Baby steps...
  4. Tower Tube Sizes

    So nobody has a tower? Lol. Any help would be appreciated. Just size, year and model. Thanks!
  5. PSS Shaft Seal

    You might take a look at the Glide Bearings shaft seal system. This was a write up I did last year on mine. I did the strut bearings at the same time but you don’t have to. https://www.wakegarage.com/projects-archive/engine-exhaust-projects/glide-bearings-dripless-shaft-seal-r88/
  6. Hey what diameter tubes are used on the Centurion/Supreme towers that have tubes going across? Are they all the same size or are there different sizes? I'm working on a project that I am hoping will work for both the Centurion and Supreme towers, but I don't have access to a dealer around me. I am mainly looking to the cross tubes overhead. Solid towers or ones with covers aren't going to work yet. If anybody can take a caliper to theirs and post their model of boat and the result I would appreciate it. Thanks

  8. Same thread. I just prefer Wake Garage to Wake World when it comes to projects like this.
  9. So the plan for the router work is this. Use the factory carpet as a template. (It came out in great shape). Mark out the template on a piece of 1/4" hard panel board. Cut out the board as a full size template. 4'x8' board is only $8, should need 2. Sand the edges as necessary to make the shape I want. Test fit as necessary in the boat. Use the board as a cutting template to guide the blade to cut out the decking the same shape. Then put the decking on top of the board and using a cove bit on a trim router, use the wood to guide the roller on the bit to keep an even edge around the outside of the template. In theory it should come out nice. We shall see soon enough. As for where I got it, I'm holding back until I get it in place to know that it is what I think it is. I hate to recommend anything until I try it. I will say you have to buy 5 sheet minimums. To do my whole boat I ordered 5 sheets of the lines and 4 sheets of the diamonds which came out to $510 shipped. If I had ordered just the 5 sheets of lines it would have been $350 shipped. Yes they do have 2 shades of gray with black lines, just not sure you need 5 sheets just for gunnel pieces. These also take about 3 weeks to order. For what you need, you might check out the link below. I looked at this first, but they were out of stock at the time. They have the dark gray with black wide grooves. http://agendasurf.com/sanded-finish-2-tone-eva-marine-non-skid-sheet-traction-50-6mm-thk-47-x-86-firm-pwc-boat.html
  10. I tried tapatalk a while back and didn't care for it. Maybe I'll go back and check it out. You might want to register over there at WG too. They have Centurion stuff too. Lots of cool projects. I'll post back some more pics when I get back to my computer.
  11. I struggle posting pics here but here is at least one.
  12. I'm working on a flooring project for my boat. It has glue in carpet and I hate it. Thought I would share it with you guys. I have a tough time posting pics here. I have it posted at wake garage. Check it out!
  13. So number five is a 2011 MB Sport B52. Got a great deal on it and it fits the family perfect. I've been busy with a bunch of mods and making her mine.
  14. Next was my 2002 Centurion Sport Bowrider direct drive. Finally had the family loving the lake on this boat. Also found out I needed a bigger boat now that the kids wanted to bring friends. I'll miss this boat.
  15. After a couple of years off I went back to the lake on a family friendly budget. I bought my 1997 Mariah from the bank as a repo recovery. Paid $3500, spent $2k over the next 4 years and sold it for $9k.
